Hip Life Musician Nhyiraba Kojo Sentenced to 30 Days Imprisonment for Contempt Over Noise Pollution Case

Popular Hip Life Musician and owner of NK City Nightclub, Nhyiraba Kojo, has been sentenced to 30 days imprisonment by a Sekondi Commercial High Court for contempt. The case was filed by three residents of Fijai over noise from his nightclub, and the court had issued an interlocutory injunction order for him to stop the noise, ensure soundproof installation, and submit a report to the court. Despite this, Nhyiraba Kojo failed to comply with the order, leading to the court’s decision to impose the sentence.

According to counsel for the petitioners, Pamela Arvoh-Mensah, Nhyiraba Kojo can purge himself of the contempt before serving the full 30 days in prison. The residents, Edmund Sampana Dienorng, Nicholas Imbeah, and Samuel Kofi Dzukey, had filed the case against Nhyiraba Kojo over the noise coming from his nightclub, which was affecting their peace and wellbeing.
